The San Marino based museum, The Huntington Library, announces the final phase of construction on its Chinese Garden. The newest phase, Liu Fang Yuan (the Garden of Flowing Fragrance), will bring the garden from 3.5 acres to 12 acres and includes the addition of a more than 2,500 square foot exhibition complex, a space for events and a new café, among other features. The Huntington aims to complete construction, steered by Chinese and American architects, contractors, and craftsmen by February 2020. This will make Liu Fang Yuan among the largest classical-style gardens in the world.
